Recording King Announces ROS-06 12th Fret 000 Style Guitar

The historic Golden Age design of the 12th Fret 000-style ROS-06 marries the specifications of the best-selling RD-06 to the Recording King Century Studio Series body.

Hayward, CA (September 29, 2009) - Recording King has made the classic 12th fret 000-style body shape affordable for players of every level with the new ROS-06.

The historic Golden Age design of the 12th Fret 000-style ROS-06 marries the specifications of the best-selling RD-06 to the Recording King Century Studio Series body. With a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the ROS-06 gives players the rich deep sound guitar players have come to expect from Recording King. The 12th fret neck joint creates a more even and subdued sound than most dreadnoughts, perfect for solo fingerstyle playing.

Crafted with a rosewood fretboard, bone nut and saddle, and tortoise shell body binding, the ROS-06 offers players professional features and a vintage look on a great sounding guitar. A budget-conscious fingerpicker’s dream instrument, with a 1-13/16” nut width and classic 25.4” scale length, the ROS-06 offers guitarists something unique at a price within reach.

12th fret 000-style bodies have garnered significant attention over the past couple of years as collector’s instruments, but few companies offer such a powerful combination of premium sound and affordability.

The ROS-06 will be available in fall 2009, and lists for $329.99. It is covered by Recording King’s lifetime warranty.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
